Reinsurance credits. Conforms Virginia's law regarding credits to insurers for reinsurance ceded to approved assuming insurers to the provisions of the Credit for Reinsurance Model Law of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. The bill eliminates the reinsurance collateral requirements for assuming insurers that are domiciled in or have their head office in a reciprocal jurisdiction, which is defined in the bill. Under the bill, such assuming insurers are required to maintain a minimum capital and surplus, maintain a minimal solvency or capital ratio, as applicable, and provide notice to the State Corporation Commission in the event of noncompliance of any requirements. The bill requires the Commission to create and publish a list of reciprocal jurisdictions and assuming insurers. Read the Bill »
